I know how you feel. I had surgery two weeks ago and was worried that I would hate not being able to eat what I wanted and in quantity. It is a different world on this side of the VSG, I started my soft diet this week and made two scrambled eggs and two turkey sausage links for breakfast. I could only eat less than half of the eggs and one sausage link, the dogs loved it. It wasn't a bad thing, I was full and I was told to stop eating when I was full. The hardest thing for me is the 30-30-30 rule, no drink 30 min before or after a meal and 30 min to eat it. I am getting used to it and it's a lifestyle change I can make. I am lucky I guess, I have no reflux nor have I felt nauseated since the surgery. I have been trying to do what I was told and it is working well, I just climb on the treadmill as soon as I get up and get it done. The best thing is that I haven't taken any diabetes meds since before surgery and my blood glucose was 104 this morning and has been good since surgery. I hope that continues and it will make my life a lot easier.
I was worried if I was doing the right thing before surgery and thought maybe I could lose it and keep it off on my own, but the six month doctor supervised diet I was on before the ins co would approve surgery showed me that it would be the same as always, lose some then gain back more. Having this surgery was the best thing I have done for my health, I should have done it sooner. Good luck and best wishes.
